Speed Cleaning 15 Minutes

These fifteen minute power cleans are saving my house at the moment!  Check out this video for my fifteen minute clean on the kitchen clutter worktop!

Set your timers and go!!!

You might be wondering why I’m talking about cleaning when my passion is health and wellness, but looking at my health holistically and all that has an impact on it, I have to take my housework into consideration.

15 minutes!!!.jpg

My housework causes me anxiety, stress and makes me feel like a failure if its not done!  I struggle for time though…I really struggle for time!  I am a busy mum of three messy little people and they need so much of my time and so much cleaning up after (which I don’t mind of course because I love them to pieces).

I can however spare fifteen minutes, knowing that in fifteen minutes I can get surprisingly a lot done!

  1. Pick the worst area of your home!  (yeah I mean it, go for it!)
  2. Set the timer to 15minutes!
  3. Ready Set, Clean!
  4. Clean likes there’s no tomorrow!  Solid cleaning for fifteen minutes! 
  5. Stop when the timer stops and leave the rest for the next session

You’ll be surprised how much you can get done in fifteen minutes, I know I was!  I was surprised!  If you don’t get a whole area clean, that’s fine just work on it next time you have a 15 minute block free!

I hope this helps to reduce your stress and anxiety around cleaning and remember if you are reading this or watching this then you are taking steps towards a better, cleaner house so give yourself a wee hug for that!  Your doing a great job!

Weight Loss Vlog 4

Hey Everyone!

Weight loss Vlog no.4 is now up on my Youtube Channel – Check it out below for my latest weight loss journey update!

Snapshot_5

Well what can I say, it was a crap month for weight loss, I blame the school summer holidays and the kids dragging me to places like pizza hut and Frankie and Bennys all summer lol!  🙂  We had great intentions of creating wonderfully healthy picnics to take everywhere but lets face it when you’ve got three kids, a messy house and an unorganised brain who has time to make such things so it resulted in a lot of eating out during our day trips!

I don’t mind, they are only young once and every second is to be enjoyed with them before they grow into big smelly adults lol!  So this weight loss vlog details all of my latest struggles and wins and I’ve been shopping to Primark because I’ve still lost enough weight to drop a few dress sizes up top so I am happy with that 😉

I would love to hear about your own weight loss journey, your struggles, your wins!  Drop me a comment below to share!

Love

Angie xx

Slow Cooker Weekly Meal Plan

Check out my awesome Autumn weekly meal plan for some nourishing slow cooker family meals!  5 Days of warming meals for a busy week!  Pop your ingredients into the slow cooker in the morning and relax knowing that a healthy family meal will be ready by family dinner time.

 

I love taking advantage of kitchen gadgets to take the pressure off now and again!  I would recommend the Morphy Richards Accents Sear and Stew Slow Cooker 6.5L 48705 Brushed Stainless Steel Slowcooker it has worked so well for us and one of my favourite slow cooker recipes books is the Superfood Slow Cooker: Healthy wholefood meals from your slow cooker there are some amazingly healthy recipes in this book and it is one of my faves for slow cooker family recipes.  Check them out if you need inspiration!

Pinterest is also worth a search for ideas and I also love the BBC website search facility too.

I hope you find some inspiration here in this video for your family slow cooking experiments!

Natural Clay Face Mask Recipes

I love these natural clay face masks!  Check out the video recipe below for three really easy recipes made with ingredients from the kitchen.

Simple clay mask

Clay & avocado

Clay & banana

(all can be made with optional oatmeal)

They are so easy to make and make your skin super soft and the clay helps to clean your skin of toxins.  It really helps to keep my skin super soft and smooth and spot free!

Try using this every week or two and I’m sure you will notice a difference.  If you’ve never used bentonite clay, here’s a good link to a brand I would recommend below.

Weight Loss Vlog 3

So I’m back from my holidays with a sun tan and a 4lb weight gain ha ha ha!

Actually I’m not that bothered about it really as I know it will come off once I start eating a nutritious diet again.  If your going on holiday this year, don’t count calories, perhaps take your running shoes or do some walking but don’t worry about your weight and any possible gain!

Life is way too short not to enjoy yourself now and again!

My next weight loss vlog after this one will be when I hit my 2stone target!  I’m going to be filming some new videos over the next few weeks on a variety of lifestyle and foodie subjects!

Look forward to sharing them with you all!

Love Angie x
